Trademark Initial Search Services
Trademark Search Service
With a Trademark Initial Search, you’ll be able to verify the uniqueness of a proposed trademark prior to the filing of a registration application, saving you considerable time and resources. The experts here at HHS Lawyers can determine the availability of your chosen trademark across a number of jurisdictions and in multiple languages, including phonetic equivalents and visual similarities.
With over a decade of experience in offering trademark services, we'll enable you to create trademarks and build your brand with confidence. Our thorough search includes the review of all registered trademarks and pending trademark applications.
There are a number of reasons why it’s crucial to conduct an initial search prior to trademark registration, including the following:
- Verify uniqueness – filing an application for trademark registration with the UAE Ministry of Economy does NOT guarantee the uniqueness of a slogan, logo, or mark. It's possible to register a trademark that infringes on pre-registered marks. This costly mistake is detrimental to a brand. An intensive and extensive trademark search can help you avoid breaching exclusive intellectual property (IP) rights;
- Comprehensive search – the firm’s IT/tech team utilizes cutting-edge technology and the expertise of our IP professionals in ensuring results of searches are broad and accurate. Our trademark search team makes use of several different search strategies when examining local and global databases in finding conflicting or similar texts and logos;
- Rejection prevention – the process of trademark registration is long and tedious. With a trademark search carried out by professionals, you increase the chance of your trademark application in getting approved. The searches that will be performed help ensure there is no conflicting mark or text existing in databases of relevant authorities.
